It is clear that in Bangkok not all 5 star hotels are created equal. There are plenty of better choices in Bangkok for the same money. I had never heard of this hotel and after looking at reviews on tripadvisor and booking.com I decided to try it. I have to say that the staff were extremely nice and cannot be faulted but the hotel itself:
For a 5 star hotel it is extremely shabby. The couches and chairs in the lobby were covered in stains and the wallpaper in the corridors was peeling off.
The room was pleasant enough but the fittings and general build of the room were of quite low spec. with uneven plastering and painting.
The pool area was fine but to be really honest the only way this hotel could possibly appear 5 star is if you have been backpacking around the islands for a couple of months.
I suggest if you are looking for a hotel in Bangkok, and are used to 5 star hotels, that you consider your options very carefully before booking this hotel.
